Black Market Magazine

Black Market Magazine was a music, film, art, and comic zine that existed from 1984 to 1996, based in San Diego. Initially, the publication predominantly featured reviews and interviews of punk rock and other alternative bands such as Samhain, The Cramps, D.O.A., Tex and the Horseheads, G.B.H., New Order, Christian Death, Bad Religion, Ramones, Murphy's Law, Butthole Surfers, Wasted Youth, Danzig, Marilyn Manson, among others. However, over its 13-issue and 10-year lifespan, film and art began to fill the majority of its pages. Image:black-market-magazine-sample-cover
